Blue Ribbon Brasserie

Blue Ribbon flagship, genially serving Soho since ’92. Legendary wee-hour scene. Off the hook seafood, as one would expect from the Bromberg brothers. Beyond caviar and oysters, gets gourmet with fondue, escargot pâté, and beef marrow and oxtail marmalade. Low-key brasserie bones; white table cloths, painted brick, slanting mirrors. Bustling, so be ready to wait, or else gather up a party of five to eight and snag a res.
